Anivorano sacred lake

4 hours | per person on a 2 people basis (excluding flights) |

Anivorano is a village in the midst of an arid savannah which owes its fame to its legendary lake.

Legend has it that after a long journey a traveller wanted to drink water but no one gave him. Shocked, he left the village. The water began to rise and all the villagers were transformed into crocodiles.

Always considered sacred, these reptiles represent the locals ancestors. Sacrifices, offerings and rituals are still performed around the lake to ask blessings, offsprings and prosperity.

Come and meet up with this legend which continues to animate Anivorano.
